Calisthenics Beginner Workout Program Requirements

Right now you probably have no/little experience of bodyweight training OR you want to start doing some calisthenics next to an other sport you are currently doing. Becoming a master of your own bodyweight takes time, but it all starts with the basics. We want to help as many people as we can, so therefore we made an entry level that is accessible for EVERYONE (men & women). This means that the requirements are zero. Many people ask us if calisthenics is not too hard for them, but NO. We started from zero, so you can too (see the testimonials). Requirements for this program:

  • 0 Push Ups, Dips or Pull ups 
  • 0 Squats, lunges or pistol squats 
  • 0 sec Handstand, Human Flag, Frontlever or Backlever
  • 0 sec plank, hollow hold & 0 situps or knee raises

Frequently Asked Questions - Calisthenics Beginner Program (FAQ'S)

Yes, you have lifelong access to the program. One of the best things about our digital programs is that you can follow your program from virtually anywhere, whenever you want. Once you enroll in a course, you’ll have access for life. Do you not have time due to circumstances? No problem! Continue with the program at a later time. You have the freedom to learn at your own pace. So you determine how much time you take for each part. This way you can work more intensively when you are ready for it or just take it easy when necessary.

But there is more. we innovate our programs when necessary. Do we give the program an update? Then you will receive the updated program! This way you can work with the program forever.

The difference is that the Beginner Calisthenics Workout Program is the first course (part 1) from the 4-Course Workout Bundle: The Full Journey. With the Full Journey Plan, you can work forwards for at least a whole year.

We highly recommend you to start with the Full Journey to get access to the complete program. This will save you a lot of money and you’ll get a better overview of the whole course. Besides that, you get access to all the exercises (150+).

The program is built up for 4 workout sessions per week. It consists of 2 strength training sessions and 2 skill training sessions. However, this is not mandatory. You can see it as a cycle of 4 different sessions. So if you are only able to train 3 times per week that is also fine. Then the cycle will just continue in the next week.

If you don’t have access to a gym or a calisthenics park and you’ll train from home you need:

  • A pull up bar (you can use a door pull up bar)
  • Parallel bars or rings (to make dips)

The minimum age would be 14 y/o. The maximum age would be 65 y/0. We have many clients from a young age but also an older age. The fact that you’ll train with your own bodyweight makes this program really safe and accessible at almost any age.

Yes, you certainly can. This program gives you options on how many days you want to train per week. So if you have other sports that you also do (e.g. soccer, boxing, CrossFit, Bootcamp, gym, etc.) you can just do your own training sessions in between the workouts of this program.

Yes, you definitely will! People often say that it’s not possible to build muscle while training with your bodyweight only, but that is completely wrong. Naturally, the human body isn’t built to move barbells or dumbbells around. Muscle development and strength increase all come down to the principle of “Progressive Overload”. When you train with your body, you have to apply a stimulus to your muscular-skeletal system to tell it to grow by adding more resistance. This is easy to apply with bodyweight training because you can make it as heavy as you want by doing more reps, or new and harder exercises.

Yes and here is why: Did you ever notice that all Calisthenics athletes are always lean and aesthetic?

This is because, with Calisthenics training, you burn a lot of fat in comparison with other sports. Most of the Calisthenics moves are compound exercises. That means that several muscle groups have to work together. Therefore, your body will burn more calories as fuel for the muscles.

In our program, all workouts focus on both explosiveness & strength (low reps range) and hypertrophy & endurance (higher rep range). Applying this combination of training in every workout will contribute to muscle development and fat loss at the same time.

Yes, there are warm-up and stretching exercises included before and after the workout to prevent injuries and increase your mobility and flexibility. They are all supported by a video.

The main difference is that this is a standard program for beginners, while a custom program will be personally designed for you and adapted to your own level, goals, and personal circumstances.
